Hello fellow patrons of DE! I must firstly say how impressed I am from the modelling of dark eldar. I walked into my local hobby store after seeing a friend buy a IG battleforce. I went in with NO knowledge of playstyle, rules, or any know how of 40k, but after browsing I became frozen in place, mindlessly staring @ the DE battleforce. After staring into the void for a bit, I asked players at the store about basic playstyle of DE, and after hearing how serious they can be in the right hands after a bit of XP, I was sold! Since then I've come to gather the following models; Archon / haemy / lahmaen / 10 hellions / an xtra raider or ravager " I magnetized xtra bits for it to be ravager cuz I'm not loaded"/ wracks / incubi /venom / razorwing jetfighter/ talos /, and converted Baron on top of the battleforce. " ask for pics of baron if interested". Also cuz I don't have a full court, I am planning on converting lhamaen to rather Succubus, lelith, or lady malys ( input on Lhamaen conversion would be helpful! )
Battleforce = 10 kabs / 10 wyches / 3 reavers jetbikes / 1 raider " also magnetized to become ravager ".
Just incase ppl don't have the exact battleforce contents info on hand.
Now I haven't really decided the direction of my army, but I know I often play against mech IG parking lot more than others at my local hobby shop. I truely enjoy using my 10 hellions w helliarch and baron, although I'm not going to make a hellions carnival list. Ive found sharing tokens from hambone and wracks to baron and the chain gang " hellions ", works out well. Since I don't have $ as of now to buy more vehicles, I'm thinking a wwp list may be suitable. Only issue is I can only have 2 wwp since I only own Archon and haemy. This is also a topic of concern. Is there any true reason not to run 1 Archon and 1 haemy as supplying the warps? I barely see ppl w these units. Also, I know, I know, I have to get another haemy,and D.T., but as of now I gotta work with what I have. I'm looking to make a 1k and 1.5k list. As said, I know I need more units and will get them, but gotta wrk w what I got. HELP!?!
As far as modeling, I currently have all 10 wyches to paint with a coordinated theme, and finish my kabs and wracks " I have my acothyst model painted if interested to give feedback!". Also I'm thinkin seriously of converting a Duke. I would do a vect, but as of where I stand w my current collection, I think that should be done another day.
Last subject matter, THEME/ FLUFF. now, I'm not a huge fluff kinda Guy, eg. While playing video games, I skip the cinematics. Lol.. Buuut, in this case, I do want to have somewhat of a cool and original-ish army background. Any advice would be huge. I know that this site is the place to find good players/ people that are usually willing to give a hoot:p
So yea, this about wraps up my pending concerns and issues. Thanks guys!
